MEET PAIGE MURRAY!

@paigedmurray

I’m Paige Murray and I live in Stephenville, TX with my husband Ty Murray (9x world champion cowboy), 3 year old daughter Oakley, and 10 year old bonus son, Kase. We live on the TY Ranch, a 2,800 acre cow/calf operation with 12 great ranch horses.

My husband Ty grew up in New Mexico. He spent the summers in New Mexico and the rest of the year in Arizona as his Dad started race horses and worked at the race tracks in each state. My first trip to New Mexico was with Ty for the PBR Ty Murray Invitational. I was introduced to green and red chiles! I know you won’t believe it but this Carolina girl hung right with the native New Mexicans and devoured the chile. It was addicting. So, I set out to learn to cook New Mexican food.

My mother-in-law taught me a good bit and I read New Mexican cookbooks cover to cover. I love the food and the culture in New Mexico and I didn’t stop working on a recipe until it tasted just right! Green Chile Pork Stew is a staple at any New Mexican restaurant you visit. No recipe is the same.

I made this recipe combining all the things I love in the Green Chile Stew: Pork, Hot Green Chile, Pinto Beans & Potatoes. The pork comes out so tender and the green chile has you going back for more!

Now this Bacon Pecan Cornbread is something special too! It’s absolutely delicious paired with this stew. It’s moist, not crumbly or dry, and the bacon drippings give it the best flavor in the world and the pecans give it such a delicious texture and added taste that will have you soaking up every last drop of stew!

The Farmhouse Vineyards Farm Fresh Sangria was perfect paired with this meal! Sangria already feels so festive and the refreshing taste is a nice balance with the heat of the chiles.
